In the last few days we have seen several incidents where religious liberty is under attack that have been directly correlated to gay rights and marriage.

Proposed rules announced by Kathleen Sebelius for the HHS contraceptives mandate brodens definition of “religious employer, but excludes companies owned by people of faith.
Susan B. Anthony List blasts President Barack Obama on his hypocrisy declaring 1/16/13 as Religious Freedom Day, 2013 while denying it to others.
Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) was a keynote speaker at The FAMiLY Leader’s Leadership Summit at Point of Grace Church in Waukee, IA. He focused on the relationship of faith and politics. He highlighted Congressman Paul Ryan’s speech yesterday morning after being selected as Mitt Romney’s running mate when he said that “our rights come from [...]
Kudos to Mike Huckabee for starting this. Head on over to your local Chick-fil-A store and go get some chicken sandwiches, waffle fries, and don’t forget to order a peach shake as well in order to support Chick-fil-A and the First Amendment. Apparently Ted Cruz served Chick-fil-A at his victory party last night. It’s [...]
Christians rallied from one end of the country to the other this past Friday to let Washington hear loud and clear that we will not allow our religious freedoms to be trampled on without a fight. There were at least 160 coordinated rallies held on the anniversary of the introduction of 12 proposed amendments to [...]

An excellent video from our friends over at the Heritage Foundation. The controversy over the Obama Administration’s anti-conscience mandate and the fight for religious liberty only serves to highlight the inherent flaws in Obamacare. This conflict is a natural result of the centralization laid out under Obamacare and will only continue until the law is repealed [...]
The Blunt Amendment was defeated in the Senate today on a 51-49 vote. The measure introduced by Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) would have allowed employers to opt out of health care coverage which would violate their religious or moral beliefs. In effect Obama’s contraceptives mandate trumps religious liberty. Senators Ben Nelson (D-NE), Joe Manchin (D-WV) [...]
I’m getting whip lash, Romney changes positions all in one day… via Greg Sargent. Mitt Romney was asked about the Blunt-Rubio amendment which would empower employers and insurers to deny health coverage they deem morally objectionable (abortions, contraceptives, etc.) First he was against it: I’m not for the bill. But, look, the idea of presidential [...]
I’ve had said before if you wonder where the direction of religious liberty is headed you don’t even need to look to Europe. Just look to our neighbors to the north. Canada passed their own gay marriage law back in 2005 being the fourth country to do so. Even before this homosexual “rights” have already [...]
The Obama Administration’s answer to the outrage expressed by the Catholic Church over his contraceptive mandate is to change the conversation from a freedom of religion issue to a plain freedom issue. In announcing his “compromise” over the contraceptive mandate announced by Kathleen Sebelius on January 20, the President employed the tried and true “bait [...]
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals rightly rules that Eastern Michigan University could not expel Julea Ward because of her religious beliefs against affirming homosexuality.

This week’s edition of five things I wanted to point out, but was too lazy to turn into individual posts: 1. A Post-Mortem of Michele Bachmann’s campaign. Jennifer Jacobs of The Des Moines Register sheds some light on problems within the campaign, things that some of on the ground outside the campaign sensed even if [...]
